Edwin McCain will be forever known as the guy who wrote that song that 14,000 American Idol hopefuls sing every season. "I'll Be" has become a modern standard, a ballad that works equally well at wedding receptions and talent-show stages. With its sweeping declarations ("I'll be the greatest fan of your life") and even more sweeping chorus — perfect for showing off powerful pipes — the song sounded like a hit when it came out in 1997. But it finally broke through with the help of Dawson's Creek, and McCain's been a touring machine ever since. His seventh album, Lost in America, features more of the same smart, well-crafted pop.
